Introduction: Carrot Flax Seed Cake
This version of the carrot cake is super healthy. A good way to feed kids who hate carrots. I have used the egg-less alternative by using Flax seeds. The flax seed powder gives a good texture to the cake. The first time I made the cake with flax seeds I was wondering how it would taste. But the cake came out spongy and delicious.
